Raison d’être

Fiction gives us empathy: it puts us inside the minds of other people, gives us the gift of seeing the world through their eyes. Fiction is a lie that tells us true things, over and over. Neil Gaiman


Once you have read a book you care about, some part of it is always with you.
Louis L’Armour


Blessed are the weird people
poets, misfits, writers
mystics, painters, troubadours
for they teach us to see the world through different eyes.
Jacob Nordby

Fiction reveals truth that reality obscures.
Jessamyn West


Sometimes other people get right to the core of how you feel, don’t they?  … in this case about my raison d’être as a novelist. I shall let these august names have the last word.
